Laura Coronado asks “why Headless WordPress is trending” and shares some articles to help one get a handle on the basics. Useful reading if you haven’t been keeping up on the past year, but I’ve heard “headless” enough to know some people are excited by it — and using it.
Right now, as a developer, I find headless WordPress to be useful and competitive in certain scenarios and just plain interesting. I don’t think it’s a fad, but I do believe it’s currently for a very small niche of websites within a larger market. Still, I believe developers should be knowledgeable, and Laura does a great job of pulling together some good sources here.
Yoast, BTW, is having a webinar on July 20th on the same subject. 📺
